I have an ongoing obsession with beach colors; sands,shells,shabby whites, blues and greens.My daughter also needed a new lamp for her bedroom. She was using a floor lamp from Target but the light bulb globe –cover-thing broke off. All she had was a light bulb on a floor stand. Haha. I stopped into Marshall’s and found this luscious light aqua lamp and shade on clearance for 19.99. Not bad! The sticker on the shade says to remove the cover before use. I had a flashback to the 1970’s when I has in high school. I went home with a girlfriend after school. Her living room was very fancy Victorian with gilded accents, and velvets. That’s all I really remember, and I hadn’t thought about it again until now; 30 years later.
Every lamp shade was covered in plastic. Every piece of furniture was zipped in to these clear vinyl covers. Of course I don’t have a picture to show. Back then, one didn’t carry a digital camera or cell phone everywhere; they didn’t exist!
But I did find a picture of the best example I could come up with.
Did you or do you now know someone that has vinyl-encased furniture. Is the plastic wrap off your shades? I’m pretty sure there is a sub culture of furniture wrappers out there.
If it is wrapped up, it will stay nice forever but it’s not very cozy. Especially, on a hot, sweaty day.
